- Hyundai Motor introduces the first model in Europe with the new N Line trim
- New design features and engineering upgrades make the i30 even more dynamic
- Video clip with motor sport legend Gabriele Tarquini showcases the new i30 N Line
The design upgrades for i30 N Line match many elements introduced on the successful i30 N. Among these upgrades are the front and rear bumpers, exclusively accented for N Line with a silver paint line. The 18-inch alloy wheels are made available on the i30 5-door for the first time, creating a more dynamic aesthetic. The new twin muffler at the rear is another design cue that marks out the i30 N Line from its siblings. On the front wings, a newly-created badge signals the N Line model.
For more sporty driving dynamics, the suspension and engine response have been refined for the i30 N Line. PS4 Michelin Performance tires are fitted, to fit with the tuned driving performance. New enlarged front brakes further enhance the i30 N Line's sporty character. Customers of the i30 N Line can choose between the 1.4-litre T-GDI gasoline engine with 140 PS and the 1.6-litre CRDi diesel engine with 136 PS.
Our i30 N has been hugely successful since launch, showcasing our capabilities in high-performance engineering and emotionalising our brand with its fun-to-drive factor. Now we are extending that feeling to a wider audience with the new i30 N Line. We believe the comprehensive package of design and engineering enhancements will continue to attract more new customers to the Hyundai brand in Europe.
Hot like chilli sauce
To celebrate the introduction of the N Line trim, Hyundai has created a new video clip that highlights the design and engineering package of the new car. Featuring motorsport legend Gabriele Tarquini, Hyundai Motorsport test driver and hugely successful touring car driver, the clip provides a first glimpse of the i30 N Line in a humorous scenario.
The i30 N Line will be available across Europe from summer 2018.
